I suffered a hip injury ridding motocross around 2003.
Needless to say I spent lots of playing PC games during my recovery.
Back then I was mostly playing Rainbow Six Raven-Shield.
I was big into squad based multiplayer gaming & matching.
My clan MTX climbed the ranks of the TWL (gamming league) to 1st place 4 vs 4 once or twice.
We dominated the 3 vs 3 pistol league.
One day during a random online game somebody was chatting about airsoft on the game.
It instantly arose my curiosity and instantly began searching the web for information.
Got some springer from Canadian vendor.
Then got a sweet deal from some random person on e-bay for a very lightly used TMAK-47 full stock. (summer 2004)
Got into the PQAC games…. And so on and so forth… drag so many of my friends into the sport.
